Pause Ponder And Pin

Okay, I've heard about brushing after each meal, but this is ridiculous!  


Okay, that was mine.  There were many better captions than that groaner this week.  For example, renalfailure had a close brush with success with...

Let's give a hand to my lovely assistant... Carl.

And KABLOOEY almost cleaned up with...

Blane bet all the guys at the bar that he was going to nail Serge this weekend...

Moooooog just squeezed by with...

No matter how hard they tried to get it out, Bill couldn't fart.

And 00dozo scraped by with...

Okay, Ed, I get your point.  Now, get off!

But Jeremy from We Took The Bait definitely nailed it with his winning entry...

Determined to live life outside of a plastic bubble, Frank gets some help administering his daily dose of 8,274 allergy shots.

Congratulations Jeremy.  You be hangin' with the dufus this week - not for the first time I might add.  Thanks to everyone for playing along.  Keep an eye out for the next Pause Ponder and Pun.

Nice shot Jeremy, and don't you love Christmas Story?

Don: It's my favourite Christmas movie.
Thanks, much, Dufus and Don!

More captioning fun over at our place, if anyone's interested! (Pay no attention to the deadline. Deadlines, schmedlines.)

Also, going back to your previous post, my word verification is "reome," which I can only assume means "Give me more Speedwagon!!"
nonamedufus said…
Jeremy: Congratulations, dude, that was a great caption. And thanks, too, for that five star review you left at Blog Catalogue...whew, you can knock me down with a feather right now. You're too kind. I'm going to use an excerpt in the right column of my blog with a link to your site.

Love your take on reome! lol

Congrats to Jeremy! This was a toughie, but his was the best!

Thanks for another honourable, dufus! And "Congrats" to the other honourables!.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: There was never any doubt as to you being honourable! Hope you missed the worst of Bonnie. You're still blogging, so that's a good sign.
Leeuna said…
Congrats, Jeremy. That was a great caption. You were right on point with it.
K A B L O O E Y said…
HA! Definitely picked the winner. I definitely concede and am in fact happy to have finally gotten on the board.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna:'re a funny lady.
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: Hey, that caption deserved an honourable mention. You did more than just scratch the surface, huh.
Quirkyloon said…
I LOVE A Christmas Story movie! And congrats to Jeremy. Great and funny caption!

Quirks: As soon as I said "keep your eye out" in my post I thought of this movie! So I had to include a picture.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
